We have to shout out our friends at Paris DJs and Nicolas Ragonneau from Musique Impures for doing what we thought was the impossible: tracking down the fellas in the Natural Yogurt Band, bargaining for a mix (featuring our mutual hero Galt MacDermot, naturally), and getting some background info on their until-now-rather-anonymous project. Well done guys!

Now-Again’s relationship with Gerald “Jazzman” Short and his Jazzman Records dates back to before the company was founded: numerous titles, from Texas Funk to Spiritual Jazz have seen conjoined release through the two labels. Now-Again represents both master and publishing for many of the most important names in the Jazzman catalog including all of the artists on the albums released on Now-Again, and soul, funk and jazz legends like those on the Saadia label, Hilton Felton, the Soul Tornados, Soul Expedition, Bobby Williams and more.
